Did you know

The world needs to increase food production by 60% to feed a population that could reach 9 billion people by 2050. But scarce resources, environmental degradation and a changing climate are all putting strains on agricultural productivity and threatening food security. To achieve zero net deforestation by 2020, Unilever tracks all sources of their products. They use technologies such as the Global Forest Watch Tool, Trase, Blockchain and more. Today, Unilever was able to trace 88% of palm oil back to the mill it originated from.

Selected Footprint Facts

  • By 2020 Unilever will help more than a billion people to improve their health and hygiene. This will help reduce the incidence of life-threatening diseases like diarrhoea.

  • By 2020, Unilever will double the proportion of their portfolio that meets the highest nutritional standards, based on globally recognised dietary guidelines.

  • Operating sustainably helps Unilever to future-proof their supply chain against the risks associated with climate change and sourcing materials. That’s why Unilever regularly increases their sustainably sourced materials. By the end of 2018, 56% of agricultural raw materials were sustainably sourced.
